Wow I never knew that. Though I'm not opposed to being banned from a sumo ring.

Huh. Looks like I need to learn some ground rules before I visit.

Not that I'd ever want to stay in a pod hotel. Look at one? Sure. Stay in one? Nah. Seems uncomfortable and inconvenient.

Semi-banned, though. Missed that.

I would say that 'semi-ban' means 'discouraged', but capsule hotels are used by both men and women, it seems.

I see three of those are related to Shinto. Mount Omine and Okinoshima Island are basically treated as Shinto temples.

3. Semi-Ban: Staying in capsule hotels
There are capsule hotels for women but a lot of them are for just men.

Women can say manko if they want. It's not banned.

Oh yeah? Then why did that artist get charged with a crime, and then get told that she can say it, but not publicly?

if you read any of the articles you posted it says that her art wasn't ruled as obscene, rather distributing 3D printer scan data of her vagina which can be used to make a replica was seen as obscene. It mentions nowhere that the reason she was arrested and charged with obscenity was from saying "manko"

Semantics, again! They are trying to suppress her, because of her artistic cause. She is SAYING MANKO, publicly, and she is getting in a lot of legal trouble because of it.

Saying, drawing, uploading, making 3D models of it. It's all the same. She is proclaiming it! And the Japanese legal system is trying to shut her up!

I believe he was posting it as an educational and informative thing rather than to provoke anger, as people might find the facts interesting. If you actually read the articles, they're mostly presented that way rather than as an attack against men because women aren't allowed certain places in Japan. Something like this is rather helpful if you plan to travel to Japan as well.
